Van Persie considers MLS move just two-years after Man United exit

Fenerbahce star Robin van Persie is considering leaving at the end of the season according to reports in Turkey.

Turkish sports newspaper Fanatik report that Van Persie will consider a move to the MLS or Europe but that he has ruled out a move to China.

Per the source, Van Persie is happy at Fenerbahce but does have his eye on a move to the US over the summer.

Van Persie does have another year remaining on his contract and while he has received interest from the MLS he has yet to be offered a deal that matches his current salary – €5 million per-season.

The Dutch striker joined Fenerbahce on a surprise move from Manchester United in 2015.

Van Persie became a hero among United fans after playing a key role in winning the 2012-13 Premier League title.

The former Arsenal man won his first Premier League championship and helped United lift the title for a record 20th time.

Van Persie has had a turbulent spell at Fenerbahce. The 33-year-old fell out with former manager Vitor Pereira and struggled for playing time.

Pereira’s replacement Dick Advocaat has made more use of Van Persie.

The experienced striker has 34 goals and six assists in 80 appearances for the Yellow Canaries in all competitions.
